I am running R2.4.1 under Windows.

> version

platform       i386-pc-mingw32
arch           i386
os             mingw32
system         i386, mingw32
major          2
minor          4.1
year           2006
month          12
day            18
svn rev        40228
language       R

version.string R version 2.4.1 (2006-12-18)

Sometimes when I exit R I do it by right clicking on the Windows tab for the group of R processes that are running (I am running in SDI mode) so there is usually the GUI and a graphics window open. When I choose the option to close the group, the tab disappears indicating that the processes have been exited, but I get the CPU going to 100% utilization.

Opening the windows Task Manager I see that the RGui process is the one consuming all the CPU. I then "end" the process with the Task Manager and everything is fine. I have not noticed that problem when either I "q()" or close the RGui window.

I was wondering if anyone else has seen the problem, or might there be something wrong with my configuration. I guess that I will just have to be nice and do "q()" to get out of the session.
